Open daily from 6:30am to 1 pm, the Pancake Haus is always busy and they focus on one type of service, Breakfast. So it's no wonder why they brag about doing it best; and I've never had a complaint.

The staff is buzzing around, but that doesn't deter them from being polite, friendly and attentive. Our waiter, Ugur, is an immigrant from Turkey and talk about being a pro; we had our coffee in seconds, and the other diners around us didn't have to wait long either. Order taken immediately after and served up about 15 minutes later; and considering how packed they were, that was fast! However, Ugur did have a few moments to answer some questions and that pleasant attitude and friendly smile never left him. We made sure to tip him very well.

So lets talk about the food at Pancake Haus; having eaten there before I can attest to the fluffiness of their pancakes, the awesome flavor of the French toast, crisp and fluffy waffles. I often favor the Pigs in a Blanket; savory sausages wrapped in those fluffy pancakes. Then there are the omelettes.

When I was there last, I ordered the Cheese Omelette with hash browns and toast (you can get silver dollar pancakes if you prefer). The omelette is large and puffy; loaded with cheddar cheese and simply delicious. The eggs were not dry and overcooked, or runny and undercooked; they were just right!

My husband had the House Omelette; eggs done up the same as mine and it was loaded inside and out with vegetables. He did not leave a scrap of omelette on his plate!

If you're looking for a great breakfast to start off your day in Moab; definitely go to the Pancake Haus. You may have to wait a bit because it's always busy, but it's worth the wait.
